>Is there a worm that is a good compost worm and also useful as fishing bait?
The worms that naturally appear when I add kitchen wastes to a part of the garden would do just fine. Especially when they're nice and big and fat. However, pity the poor fisherman who tries to steal one of my beloved worms and stick a nasty hook through it.
PS I do a rotating vermicomposting on my plot. I garden by the square foot method and as I rotate the squares, I designate one for vermicomposting and put lost of green wastes a few inches down. I water this square with all the others. In a very rapid time the worms have digested most everything and I put new goodies for them in the next square. Sort of a lazy person's fertilizing. The worms usually quickly migrate to the new square and I plant the last square. Since the worms are in the regular garden, there's no worry about heat and cold during the gardening season.
And related to this, does anyone do vermicomposting on their plots? And if
>so how do you protect your worms from Zone 6-7 heat and cold extremes?
